Tomorrow starts our official first day of school for the 2009-2010 school year. I will have a senior, junior, and 8Th grader. As I have been getting things ready, my heart started to hurt a little. I cannot believe that my baby girl is going to be a senior. I remember starting school with her as a pre-schooler. She was very anxious to do the same things as her big brother. She had her own little desk with her little box of crayons and a big smile on her face. As I start this new year, I look back in awe at the young lady she has become. I want so badly for this year to be full of learning but more importantly I want them to be full of life and love. When she leaves next year for where ever she is headed, I want her to know that her family loves her. Yes, she learned important facts but they can all be forgotten over time. The one thing remains and that's the love that we have for each other.

Have you started your school year yet?
What grades are your 'students' in?

How did your first day go?

My boys are starting the 3rd and 5th grades. It just gets better and better, doesn't it?
